Preventing Nozzle Clogs in Our Large Format Printer

Like anyone else with a professional level Epson printer, we're constantly battling against the dreaded clogged nozzles. The situation is always worse in the winter, when we're constantly heating our home, creating a dry environment. Well, George at Pro Photo Supply just gave us something new to try: placing a wet sponge in a Tupperware container with holes drilled in the lid into the cabinet while the printer is not in use. This will create a mini "humidifier" that should help keep the microscopic nozzles from drying out and clogging. We'll let you know how successful it turns out to be!
